grown-up forts

Back on Evening Trail in my home town of Spring, Texas, my childhood friend and I would make a fort that spanned her entire living room. I'm talking clothespins in the ceiling, every sheet in the house, turned over coffee-table-turned headboard, four bedroom fort. (How great were her parents to let us do this, meanwhile?)

So I wonder, if something so simple brought us so much joy, why don't we do it as grown ups? It could be so magical - blankets, pillows, a string of lights, music...Who cares that we have to rearrange the living room furniture and do some laundry? Here's some inspiration that may help you tap into that old childhood feeling.
